    "A market and seafood restaurant located a 10-minute drive from the Mito-Oarai interchange. The facility's market area sells fresh fish from Oarai and the Kashima Sea as well as processed foods like homemade dried fish and shiokara fermented seafood paste. The restaurant portion of the facility serves an abundant array of dishes made possible thanks to the incredibly fresh seafood available from the nearby fishing port. The ""Ganbappe Oarai Teishoku"" set meal comes with deep fried local fish, fresh broiled clams, and other dishes made with an abundance of seasonal ingredients. Also including shirasu oroshi whitebait and grated daikon radish, rice, and assorted sides, this hearty set meal is sure to satisfy."

    待ち時間は非常に長いです。早くから空いているので、朝食にも利用できます。前回は7時半ごろに並んで食べたのが11時。ランチになってしまいました。 今回は初めからランチ狙い。11時に到着。ラッキーなことに2組待ちだったので、すぐ座れました。相方が食したマグロのカマ塩焼き定食は相変わらずの迫力。大量の刺身も付いているので大満腹。私はマグロステーキ定食。隣の席のマグロのテールの焼き物も気になったので、次回...

    "A Japanese restaurant located in Oarai Town, Higashiibaraki County, Ibaraki Prefecture. The restaurant offers a diverse selection of dishes made with local fish, focusing in particular on pilchard served sashimi, tataki (seared), and tempura-style. The restaurant's ""Tokusen Kaisen-don"" rice bowl is particularly popular and covered with so much seafood, you can't even see the rice underneath. Another of the restaurant's pluses is that customers can enjoy seasonal Oarai flavors like rock oysters in the summer and goosefish nabe hotpot in the fall. The restaurant's ""Ryoshi no Dobujiru"" seafood miso soup, made without any water added, is limited to just one customer a day. The establishment's monthly special set meals are limited to 10 customers a day. The restaurant also offers omakase chef's choice courses perfect for important and special occasions."

    "A Japanese confectionary shop located on the Nagacho Shotengai shopping street in Oarai Town. The shop's popularity exploded after its ""Mitsu Dango,"" skewered triple dumplings which are a local Oarai favorite, were featured in a popular animated television series. Plump mitarashi-style flour dumplings covered with a special sauce and kinako toasted soybean flour, their novel texture combined with their familiar, old-fashioned flavor have long made them a favorite with locals. Customers can purchase a single skewer or sets of five or 10 skewers. Now that Oarai has become a mecca for anime fans, the shop also has anime-themed displays and sells merchandise as well."

    甘いもの好きなのでふらっと寄ったお店です。 「みつだんご」というみたらし団子的なのが有名なお店ですが、甘いもの好きでも少し甘いと感じるお店です。 甘いものが苦手な人はちょっとつらいかも知れません。味は甘いですが、お団子はすごくやわらかく、つるっと食べれます。 1本から買えますが「えっ1本でいいの?」みたいな感じで言われますが、相当甘いものを欲していない限り1本で充分だと思います。

    Saza Coffee is a coffee shop which operates a coffee farm in Colombia and is working hard to make the delicious flavor of coffee the best by cultivating coffee beans.

The cafe's floor to ceiling glass windows offer a sweeping view of the lake, and the bright, natural lighting gives the establishment a comfortable atmosphere.

The cafe also has a shop area where you can buy ceramics and coffee beans."

    広くて明るくて湖に面しているカフェ。ハンバーグステーキを注文しました。味が良かったが、野菜とご飯が少なくてちょっとお腹が空いたままここを去りました。出さた飲み水はなぜかトイレのような匂いでした。別に用意された果物のスライス入りの水をもらったら、大丈夫でした。天気さえよければ、もっと周りの景色を楽しめたはずです。満腹になれなかったのは残念なので、評価を一点下げました。
